Neptune Energy dishes out £3m worth of contracts for Cygnus

Neptune Energy has announced a series of contract awards to support its key southern North Sea gas field.

Totalling almost £3 million, the deals for work at the Cygnus Alpha and Bravo platforms cover diving support vessel services, helicopter services and general inspection activities.

Neptune said the contracts would help to support maintaining high levels of production from the facility, which is capable of producing 6% of UK domestic gas demand.

John Moffat, the company’s director of operations for the UK, said: “We are continuing to work with our partners across the supply chain to ensure continued safe and efficient operations at Cygnus, which is strategically important for domestic gas supply to the UK.”

These latest awards follow the announcement of two contract extensions to Petrofac for operations and maintenance and engineering at Cygnus – it came into effect at the beginning of the year.

Cygnus is the largest single producing gas field in the UK, typically exporting over 250 million standard cubic feet of gas a day.

It supplies energy to the equivalent of 1.5 million UK homes and has a field life of over 20 years.

Cygnus Alpha consists of three bridge-linked platforms; a wellhead drilling centre, a processing/utilities unit and living quarters/central control room.

Meanwhile Cygnus Bravo is an unmanned satellite platform, around four miles north-west of Cygnus Alpha.

Gas is exported via a 34 mile pipeline.
